Well I got an Atomic man head from brownboots and it was missing the optic part for his eye to blink (I'd imagine many are!) well i had some smallish diameter black plastic coated fibre optic cable at work so I had an idea to use some as a replacement... I slid an longer than needed piece through the eye hole (i curved the piece first to make life easier) and used long nosed pliers through the neck hole to push the other end up through the hole in the head, I then pulled it flush with eye hole and clipped it off at top of head.. Sorry I didnt do WIP photos but I often have limited vam time and just got on with it.. I did however take a couple of after shots to show the working eye. Hope this may help others fix there atomic mans blinking optic...

Great idea Ross...seems like it's crying out for a small LED as well. Does it mean that I can come to you for some fibre optic cable if I buy one of those figures next year?

I didn't glue it Ralph! But that's not to say that you can't when you got it spot on! I prefered not too as I don't like to commit until I'm sure!! I'm sure now but too lazy to glue it!!! Lol
